"Hello Moira, thanks for your reply, I'm only seeing it now!  It would be amazing if you could ask Dagmar.  How can I PM you?  I'm new to this site so will try and add you to my email contacts? Fiona"

Profile Information

Which Douglas line are you researching? Dates and places help making connections.
I don't have any Douglas ancestry that I know of but my attention is drawn to the thread regarding the Highland Orphanage in Inverness. My family have been trying to get in touch with Dagmar Liebmann for a number of years to thank her for looking out for my dad who was in the orphanage with her. Her niece, Moira Hodges, has posted on your site talking about her aunt a bit, and so was hoping your website could help me get in touch with Moira, and then hopefully Dagmar herself. I realise that this is not the purpose of your archives, but I would be most grateful if you could assist in some way as this has a huge personal and emotional significance to myself and my family.

Hi, Fiona

I am not able to put you in touch with other members, but if you search for 'Highland Orphanage' (top right on your screen) you will find others who have posted here, and you can make contact directly.

Good luck with your research - I do understand something of the emotional aspects you are facing.

 
 
 

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
